you don't. it's dreadful. i found it difficult to believe it was made by the same guy who made the others, to be honest. i just didn't get it AT ALL. the other three are lovely little gems, though.

i agree with indiehorse on both the willow smith and cee-lo green fronts, too.

Yeah, I think it was you that warned me off it in the first place. I'll spend my time watching the others again rather than giving that a go.

Even though Alphabeat liked it enough to name a song after it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5FFpfF2AZzY ? Or at least I assume they did, anyway. They always like to claim their song Boyfriend was inspired by Show Me Love.

Probably not, because then it really would be proper grim rather than just Swedish grim which is the equivalent of "quite pleasant, actually" in Britain.

Amål's just meant to be a boring nowhere town (like most of Sweden outside the big cities tbh), rather than somewhere grim though.

it sounds a bit like Dizzee Rascal if he had collaborated with some kind of ace electro producer instead of the dreadful Calvin Harris. The lyrics are really funny and the synth in the background of the rapping bits is great!

Agree with all of that. By a mile the most amusing, musically literate (love the dubby breaks!) and satisfying number one all year. Yes.

Question to the floor. I note with interest that this was released on Rough Trade earlier in the summer. An attempt at chart popdom with a manufactured singer singing specially commissioned songs like as what everyone else does? A stroke of genius? A monumental pisstake? A bit of a miscalculation of My-Beauty-by-Kevin-Rowland proportions? Or what? I can't decide...

And it would still have been released as "Show Me Love" in Anglophonia.

Ooh, I hadn't heard this Joe Worricker fellow. It definitely works for me. I like it when indie labels go pop, and Rough Trade have had form on that front what with the success of Duffy. It's a shame this wasn't all over Radio 1 (unless it was and I didn't notice).

(Also, I totally would...)

I love this!!! I must say that it reminds me of several things at once...there's definately a Lightning Seeds feel to this (and while were on the Chart Pop thread, 'Pure' was POP! heaven which should have spent 10 weeks at number 1), there's also something in there from the late 80's which I can't quite recall...I can see the record sleeve in my mind...bugger.

Finally, the melody at the start of the chorus (everytime you come around / we hug in bed....) bears more than a slight resemblance to something...it took me a few listens to work out what...'Razzamatazz' by Pulp...
Love is a weakness in the knees...it's dangerous on the stairs...

It bloody IS the Lightning Seeds' Life's Too Short, only with more sickly gurning and even more vocoder. And that's a lot of vocoder.

There's a fab mix by Dave Aude on Spotify.

There's notthing really new or spectacular going on here, and it's hard to still get excited about an album that has been at the #1 position of the Dutch charts for about the whole of 2010, but still... I do like Caro Emerald. She's a sweet girl and the songs are catchy as hell.

Back it up


A night like this
